The View had a bit of a shakeup on Friday as hosts Ana Navarro and Sunny Hostin had to depart the set mid-episode after testing positive for COVID-19.
Just before they were scheduled to bring out Vice President Kamala Harris as the guest, an off-camera show runner asked that Ana and Sunny step off the set, and advised other co-hosts Joy Behar and Sara Haines not to introduce the VP.
Moments later, Joy revealed that both Sunny and Ana have tested positive for COVID-19, despite being fully vaccinated.
“No matter how hard we try, these things happen,” Joy shared with the audience. “They probably have a breakthrough case and they’ll be okay, I’m sure, because they’re both vaccinated up the wazoo.”
Harris did make a remote appearance on the show from a separate studio at ABC’s New York headquarters.
